I have entered the world of grandparenthood as of Tuesday night. Baby girl. NOW I feel old, as if hanging around this place hasn't been enough. Figure I'll stop smiling around next week or so. Cigars for everyone. Amazing stuff and really puts it all in perspective.

Threw this on for the ride to work this AM:

First set is OK, but the Pre-Drums run is silly. The jam out of He's Gone doesn't get any better. Hell, even the CC Rider actually fits with Brent taking charge and putting the B3 on display. Think I'll call this one "Re-Deocration Blues" cause Lord knows this place needs it now.

Still deciding the best time to start the formal indoctrination process. I'm thinking that putting together a compilation of some mellow acoustic material to play in the nursery is a good start.

Congrats SDH. I would highly recommend Not For Kids Only for the indoctrination. I think it was Garcia and Grisman's response to Barney and Raffi. I gave a copy to my then 3 year old daughter and at 9 she still will pop it in her CD player every now and again. She wore out one disc so i had to burn her a second one. Great stuff.

Congratulations on the Next Generation! And a great choice of music to celebrate -- the Gloria jam is incredible. Could be risky in the nursery, though :-)

Congrats, grandpa! The dark hollow welcomes another member. I just had my first child in January, and I couldn't be happier.

Acoustic music for the newborn is an excellent idea, by the way. For me, the Gillian Welch/David Rawlings show from 9/26/97 has been like pure gold. Not only is it a remarkable performance/recording, but it now has a narcotic effect on my baby girl. No kidding. I'd be happy to send it your way if you provide contact info.

Appreciate the teacher comment. In all honesty all I really hope to instill in her is a true love of music, regardless of what "genre". Like my Dad and Grandfather both, I will be sure that there will always be something playing in the background.
I have distinct memories of my Dad stacking various 45's on the old Zenith stereo to play during dinner: classical, Sinatra, Waylon and Willie, Cash, ELP, Beatles and so on. No wonder I'm so warped today.

Alas, Granparenthood seems a ways off for me and Mrs. Mando. My only "Grandchild" bit my foot last night when my daughter and hubby came over for our Thursday Family Dinner Night.

Congrats Mr. Hollow.

I'll give this '79er a spin. Been too long since I've given '79 any love. I dig your idea of an acoustic compilation for your granddaughter. Is your son or daughter a GD fan though? Just put on Reckoning. Hopefully her first words will be the lyrics to Monkey and the Engineer. I didn't hear that song until I was a teen, but I would have loved a song like that as a kid. Sure beats the hell outta Raffi (what I actually listened to as a little little kid). Just keep her away from any modern mainstream music please!

Unfortunately my daughter's musical tastes are firmly rooted in the modern age, but at least more on the "alternative" side of things. Tool, Perry Farrel, Incubus and others(with a touch of Bob Marley to keep Dad happy).

"Baby beluga in the deep blue sea,
Swim so wild and you swim so free.
Heaven above and the sea below,
And a little white whale on the go."

Kind of odd lyrics to sing about a whale that spent its whole life in captivity, no? (BUT, did Kavana ever know that she was in captivity, i.e., can you miss a Moon Pie if you've never had a Moon Pie?)

When I first moved to Mobile, Alabama, my girlfriend took me to my first Mardi Gras parade. Growing up in Huntsville, I had never seen anything like it (engineers just don't swing that way). Just about the time the first floats came past, I had the full-throttle munchies. I'm looking behind me some reason and I feel this WHAP! up side my head; I thought someone had slapped me. I turned around and three more came at me. So I was like "hmm, wtf is this little thing?" Ripped it open—Yum! Marshmallow! Ooh, banannanana! Damn, I couldn't stop. I must have ate five of them before girlfriend looks at me in horror: "what are you doing?" (Apparently, people from HER zip code did not indulge in MPs off the street, no matter how stoned they were.)

No moon pies in Baton Rouge but here's a William Tell between two slices of StSt and 11.

" what ever became of her? "

We got married; we got divorced. Our oldest is grown but we both have younger kids the same age that are friends and on occasion, like last night, we'll babysit her kids if the need arises. She has a sneaky habit of strolling with her younger ones past my house around dinner time and if she sees smoke coming from the grills out back, she'll mosey into the backyard, "Why I had no idea you were cookin'—just what ARE you cookin'?"

It's all good.

“there isn't much of anything out there that can top Raffi's "Baby Beluga"”

Yes, I suppose you're correct. I can't deny Raffi's musical prowess. And much like the GD, I also prefer pre-hiatus Raffi (Bananaphone ain't got shit on Baby Beluga and Down By The Bay. He even used to play Goodnight Irene). He was never the same once the persian took hold. Ok, I might have made that last part up, but he did take a hiatus in the mid '80s.

Very sad news about Baby Beluga :-(

Pre-hiatus? To each his own I guess. I think he did his best work later. 'Everything Grows' in '87 and 'Raffi In Concert With the Rise and Shine Band' from '88 are phenomenal. As was Raffi On Broadway in the early '90s (yes, we went).

At least that's what my then 3 year old daughter would have said. If you disagreed with her today about Raffi's best years, you would probably get a knee-buckling eye roll and a "Whatever...."

Well, I really haven't analyzed Raffi's music enough to assess which era is best. I just checked the dates on a few tunes I remember liking as a kid, and they were mostly from the '70s and early '80s. I'll take you and your daughter's word that post-hiatus Raffi contains the most inspiring and compelling music. Sounds like his impatience with children was the reason for his hiatus:

“he found it difficult to perform for younger kids (under 3 years old) because their short attention span was distracting to him and to the rest of the audience”

Interestingly, I think many children's entertainers, authors, etc. weren't too fond of children. I remember seeing an interview on Colbert Report with author Maurice Sendak (Where The Wild Things Are), who essentially admitted that he doesn't like children. I've also heard that Scharles Schulz (Peanuts comic strip creator) wasn't too fond of kids.
